Eurovision Insight Podcast: Albania Starts The Selections In Style Written by on December 29, 2017 | 1 Comment

Between Christmas and New Year, between the first selection and the last, between stompy folk and Despacito clones, is the Insight News podcast. Stay up to date with all the news about the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 with Ewan Spence and the ESC Insight podcasts. Add the RSS Feed to your favourite podcast application, or click here to follow us in iTunes and never miss an episode.

Albania has kicked off the livestream portion of the National Final season with Festivali i Kegnes, and we have our first song (albeit before the three-minute edit arrives). Add in more dates for the other National Finals, more performers confirming their songs, and some old favourites returning, 2018 is shaping up to be a great year for the Contest.
